Hello - we have an 8yo son with ASD who is currently under a dietician because of limited food intake.

It's mainly dairy/carbs that he will eat. No fruit or vegetables at all. We have been told to introduce two food types in the next six months slowly, so we have started by offering each night in a separate bowl and using a social story BUT tonight he has got so upset. He is touch the mashed potato/put to his lips but then he had a major meltdown.

Help please - any advice? Does it get easier? Keep trying the same way?

I'd ask MNHQ to move this over to the Special Needs Section. There are some lovely, experienced MNers in there thanks
